    Just to let everyone know, vBulletin is due for an upgrade at 1700h EST tomorrow, 30 May 2013. Expect a little downtime.

    I hope this one will be smoother than the last one...
    I was thrown out of college for cheating on the metaphysics exam; I looked into the soul of the boy sitting next to me.

    This is a snakeskin jacket! And for me it's a symbol of my individuality, and my belief... in personal freedom.

    It would be good to know which bugs/issues you are going to fix with this "upgrade", and which ones and why you are NOT going to fix.

    That's above my pay grade..

    But a resourceful and curious person could probably find out if they wanted too:

    BEFORE:
    You are currently running vBulletin version 4.1.5 Patch Level 1.

    AFTER:
    You are currently running vBulletin version 4.2.0 Patch Level 3.

    Still uncertain if it'll happen today... And for what it's worth - the delay is a man power issue or lack there of and not a technical issue

    We had quite a delay when it comes to old posts... this time maybe the subscription of old threads show up.
    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.

    After the upgrade I now get all new posts marked as "The threads below have not been updated since your last visit but still contain unread posts.". Even brand new threads are marked as that.

    Try using the "FORUM ACTIONS" - Mark All Threads Read option to see if that clears it up.
